While I agree with many of the comments from other reviewers here, I wouldn't exactly qualify this sequel as a complete disappointment. "Tempting Danger" was a tough act to follow, and for the most part, "Mortal Danger" is a well-written and compelling story. Author Wilks has a unique and very entertaining 'voice'. Her characters are vividly drawn, dialogue sparkles, and the universe she has created is certainly fascinating.

That said, MD is much more of a plot-based novel than the debut, and if you're looking for emphasis on characters, relationships and their development, you aren't going to find a ton of it here. The main characters, FBI special agent Lily Yu and her werewolf prince Rule Turner, spend more than half the book essentially separated, and while their journey back to each other has its own special moments, including a heartfelt payoff, the read seems a tad long in between.

I realize Wilks is expanding the detail of her universe and setting the framework for future novels, so I'm willing to be patient. I'm hoping that future installments are a bit more balanced between the plot and the characters. TD was very successful in that regard. Still, there's a lot more I'd like to know about Rule and Lily, secondary players like Benedict, Cullen and Cynna -- and what the conflict between spiritual realms is actually heading for in the "Danger" series setting. That curiosity is definitely a result of Ms. Wilks's writing skill.

In the context of future novels, MD might sit a little better in line with the whole series, but it's too early to tell. If I could, I'd rate this one at 3 1/2 stars -- worth the read, but not quite as inspiring as the first. Whatever the case, I'm still looking forward to hearing more.

I just finished this book and was curious what others thought of it. I was shocked to read some of these reviews. I'm not sure what they wanted--maybe more romance and less plot. I thought this was one of the most enjoyable books I've read recently! The two main characters are fascinating; Lily is a strong, compassionate woman (somewhat like Anita Blake before the author thought a story comprised mainly of sex instead of a plot made for good reading)and Rule, the prince of the Nokolai werewolf clan makes a perfect foil. The magical world that Wilks has created is fascinating and looks to become more so in future books. Don't be swayed by the above reviews; if you like the earlier Anita Blake books---minus some of the blood and gore---you'll enjoy this book.

Mortal Danger

Eileen Wilks

Berkley Sensation 2005

PB 393

ISBN # 0-425-20290-9

Imagine a modern world where a large percentage of the population has special gifts, and are accepted, well. . .by most people anyway. This world hires individuals with specific talents suited for special jobs. Sensitives might be hired to find others with gifts and magic can't stick to them. Finders might be used in crime investigations because they're good at finding patterns of things and people. They might also sort the energy detected and then find its source. Now if empaths, gnomes, faeries, and magic co-existing with regular humans aren't enough for you, Wilks adds werewolves, whips up a romance between a FBI agent and a werewolf prince. Oh, and the werewolf's pack contains its own unique system and interesting abilities.

Lily Yu is a former homicide cop who recently became a FBI agent and mate-bonded with a werewolf prince. She is a Sensitive and her gift is useful at her job with the Magical Crimes Division. What Lily Yu doesn't know is that an ancient evil is planning something unimaginable. As the trap is set, Lily Yu draws closer to a dividing precipice where her life, abilities, sanity, and bond with her mate, are all on the line. Trust isn't her thing, never was, but she's not given any choice. Can she give enough to her mate Rule?

The author of `Temping Danger' is back with another tale of speculative romance, but not the syrupy kind. This one focus' more on a strange world and in Lily Yu's aptitude. The stakes are high in this unusual world. The line between worlds is super charged and Wilks pries open a glimpse. `Mortal Danger' is a legal thriller meets Fantasy type of story.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Since Tempting Danger, Lily Yu and Rule Tanner have been united in a mating bond, and as thrilling as that might be, it's just one more thing on the lovely human cop's plate. Her family has a dozen things going on that she's obligated to participate in, and her work in homicide is always, well I won't say hairy, since that's what Rule becomes when he turns into a wolf, but you get the idea. It seems even a world where magic is part of daily life is not without its cult figures, and the latest is more dangerous than your average nutcase, and he has decided he needs Lily's soul as an element to unleash demonic forces into the world. To stop him, Lily and Rule must work with one of Rule's old girlfriends, from twenty years ago. As a werewolf, Rule ages slowly, and looks just as he did or better than when he was part of Cynna's life. Yet, when Lily is torn in half and part of her sent to Hades with Rule, Cynna will prove to be a good friend to them both.

There is a lot going on in this book. The lead couple still makes sparks fly as they try to solve the case and figure out what their bond means. The secondary characters also have strong voices, and more than one makes you want to know more about them. The main drawback is that at one point, there is a stretch of space that will leave you saying "huh? What's going on here?" However, after a couple of dozen pages, it does become somewhat clearer.
